Loud Idle, not rough.... loud engine

Asked by Oct 02, 2015 at 02:37 PM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

doesnt idle rough, but the engine seems loud when idling and driving.
Wondering if its engine related or muffler/exhuast?
Doesn't seem to be exhaust..... sounds like its just a loud running engine.

Also to note... engine oil levels normal, just had oil change done.


not enough info...could be anything..from a ac clutch to an exhaust manifold gasket....

the car is driving perfect, no issues with performance. the Engine sound just appeared to be louder the last couple days. I thought maybe it was just at startup in the morning, as its been pretty cool the last few days. no driving issues. No need for new or more oil, oil levels at max. Exhaust noise doesnt sound louder when idle or driving. Not sure what other info to give.
